    I've really enjoyed every minute I've spent with Dirt Rally 2.0, just as I did with 1.0 before it. The handling is gorgeous, the routes are truly beautiful to look at, and the management is ...manageable. The cars all have tons of individual character, the rallycross feels scrappy and frenetic and everything just comes together wonderfully. Codemasters, eh? They really have the hang of this thing.

    DiRT Rally 2.0 does nothing but improve the reputation of the purest, modern rally series out there.

    Codemasters has succeeded in perfecting an already spectacular driving model, making it more reactive and enjoyable, launching DiRT Rally 2.0 towards the throne of the best rally game ever. Launching, at day one, without events on the snow, the title is missing a fundamental piece. Apart from that, this is now the most refined rally simulator on the market.

    DiRT Rally 2.0 far surpasses other rally titles and other games that feature, though don't specialise in rallying. With an extensively detailed roster of cars, where each of them feels, handles and reacts differently, on tracks that actively degrade through constant use, changing the lines you'll have to take, this is a game that will keep you thinking. Best of all, unlike its prequel (to an extent) and other racing sims, it's accessible thanks to a bevy of assists that you can change to suit your needs. A game that only features a few downsides, the primary one being a shallow career mode and some minor bugs here and there. All things considered, DiRT Rally 2.0 is the premier rally experience you could hope to have.

    It could be improved in terms of content, but no other rally sim gives you driving physics as sophisticated, challenging and simply great as Dirt Rally 2.0!

    DiRT Rally 2.0 brings some great and challenging driving feelings in spite of a too clasic career mode and a graphics engine that sometimes feels a bit old.

    With excellent vehicle handling, DiRT Rally 2.0 finds itself in a strong position. It also has superb visuals and brutal simulation aspects. Apart from AI issues and track repetition, it should please most rally fans.

It is in particular the FFB which has now beenUpdated review (June 3rd '19): The game is finally in a state where I dare recommend it. It is in particular the FFB which has now been upgraded to a state, where it is more than half decent. I would even say I definitely enjoy the FFB in many aspects now. It has elevated the driving experince from uninspiring to exciting.

    The rest of the game is rock solid, greatly crafted (but too few) tracks and very nice selection of cars. The graphics are stellar with good performance and the audio is great. The pace notes co-driver voice is not to my liking, but I guess that is a very personal preference.

    Based on the improved FFB I would now recommend the game and I have raised my score given from 5 to 8. The game will probably never be as iconic as the original DIRT Rally, but it is at this very moment the best new rally game out there.

    Attention, I'm assessing an Xbox Game Pass for Windows version, it might not apply to other versions (Steam for instance). So, basically, I'mAttention, I'm assessing an Xbox Game Pass for Windows version, it might not apply to other versions (Steam for instance). So, basically, I'm giving it 3/10 thanks to the sounds, looks and physics, otherwise would be 0/10. I can't assess the content though, cause I had no opportunity to check it out and here's why. The game is extremely badly optimised. And I really mean it. It either freezes every 2 seconds with a good framerate or goes in like 10 fps. And that happens even with low graphics settings and reso 1366x768 on my Ryzen 5 2600, x470, GTX1660 OC, 2666 MHz 32 GB machine. Basically, changing graphics settings doesn't affect the game at all, so I believe the problem is somewhere else. It simply can't be played. So be aware of those problems before you download those insane 80 GB... Expand

Dirt rally is still waaay better. Tarmac physics is not imporved, there's no force feedback when using s wheel, always online DRM deletes your save file it your internet connection is down or their servers decide to not connect for a minute. Impossible difficulty, no difficulty setting. Avoid this game. It a scam, you can't even play and progress through single player. Expand
